Urban food forests explained by an experienced grower!

Greetings garden lovers ~

We are pleased to announce that renowned Food Forester, Richard Walker, will be instructing on June 22nd and 23rd at the Shatford Centre. Space is limited, so we encourage you to research this amazing gardening process and decide whether you would like to attend as soon as possible.

Maybe you’ve read the recent UN report recognizing perennials as essential in creating sustainable food sources…

Or maybe you realized what many gardeners, farmers and people around have discovered…

Food Forest gardening provides food, fiber, fuel and medicine with lower maintenance and cost over time. 

Whatever you’ve heard, food forest gardening is a method of gardening based on natural forest systems that, when mature, need little to no fertilizing, watering or maintenance.

The workshop will be held from 9 am to 5 pm, June 22nd & 23rd. Cost is $200. Scholarships or volunteer arrangements may be available.

"Compared with other major clinical disorders, little systemic research has been devoted to psychopathy, even though is is responsible for far more social distress and disruption than all other psychiatric disorders combined." Dr. Robert Hare "For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations."
